    Just got the T roadster out after a winter full of projects. All new wiring harness, turtle deck, wheels and tires, valve covers, air cleaner, new mahogany dash, painted grill shell and headlight buckets, new headers and mufflers, new fuel tank, fuel pump etc. Still need to paint the body and turtle deck (black)

    After and before... 20200425_150655.jpg 0303191057.jpg

    Thanks for the kudos guys. What you can't see in the before pic is the barbed wire and orange plastic dice trim... the po (who never registered it) had a 24 ounce framing hammer for a gearshift. Most likely would slam into "park" when he stepped on the brakes!

    Nice job! You spent some time and effort, it shows.
    What happened to the slots? Looking for a pair of 15x10s.

    Kinda late '50s early '60s look. Not authentic with disc brakes, msd ignition among other things. I'm just not into the T bucket style...
